Talking about Headaches

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I have been working in a private company for about 3 years now. In my working life, I am spending hours in front of computers and after a year I experienced terrible headaches that I can't stand and need to close my eyes for minutes to ease a little pain. I was thinking then what was causing this headaches and my office mates advised me to see an ophthalmologist. The next day, I went to the nearest one and find out that my eyes was the one causing that headaches. They advised me to wear reading glasses. I have read the below article and decided to share it to readers and maybe a little can help. :)

Eyestrain, stress and hormonal shifts are fairly common causes of headaches which afflicts millions of people (most are women) but sometimes the usual suspects don't explain that pain in our head. Well, some triggers are just plain weird like the following:
Strong odors may activate the nose's nerve cells which stimulate the nerve system associated with head pain. Ironically, the offending scents are often pleasant. In this case, avoid perfumes, strong household cleansers, fragrant soaps, shampoos and air fresheners. But the problem nowadays is that almost what wee see in markets are scented. Medicines can help too, like aspirin, acetaminophen and caffeine. But there are some side effects also, because if we will be a medicine dependent, it will cause the aches to come again as soon as the effect of med wear off.
Studies show that headaches-prone are especially attuned to weather changes. The meteorological shifts are thought to trigger chemical and electrical changes in brain that irritate nerves.
Earrings, headbands and ponytails
The muscle groups around the scalp don't have pain fibers, but their connective tissues do. Ponytail headaches result when tightly pulled hair irritates the muscle system. Tight fitting hats, headbands and heavy earrings also causes pain. In the case of earrings, it's possible that earrings can pull on that same connective tissue. Some studies suggest that skin sensitivity around the scalp, face, ears often accompanies migraine.
Eating several small meals a day keeps our blood sugar on an even keel. Dieting, fasting, skipping lunch can cause to bottom us to bottom out and may trigger headache. If suffering from moderate, severe or frequent headaches, consult a headache specialist about your diet.

Guess what? EC dropping is GOOD. I managed to find TWO ads here that are helping me with my nagging headaches, something I have had since I was a child.

Very helpful, both of them. Thanks a lot!
